    ...ίσως και "humble" servants (αν ψάχνουμε για ειρωνεία); (always ready and happy to obey and do the will of the party - be a good party man/a trusty partisan - especially if they're feathering their own nests).

    Μήπως είναι "gatekeepers" (οι νοικοκυραιοι);
    ... i.e., people (vigilant control freaks) protecting the status quo/their (privileged/gentrified?) way of life, and who take exception to anyone threatening it?

    "A gatekeeper is a person who controls access to something, for example via a city gate or bouncer, or more abstractly, who is granted access to a category or status. Gatekeepers assess who is "in or out," in the classic words of management scholar Kurt Lewin."

    ... έτσι, ο νοικοκύρης σχετίζεται με το "housekeeping" (sort of) και οι νοικοκυραιοι με το "gatekeeping" (οπού το "keeping" έχει να κάνει με το control/vetting/managing - putting things in order, being in charge of/deciding on what goes where/who is "in" or "out", etc..).

    Ξανά, γιατί ξεφεύγεις.

    (fine) upstanding citizens
    respectable family men
    men of property
    petty bourgeois

    Συμφωνώ.

    Επηρεάστηκα, όμως, από αυτό το άρθρο .... https://www.andro.gr/apopsi/zak-kost...-noikokyraioi/ που μου έδωσε την εντύπωση ότι έχει και μια δευτερεύουσα έννοια (αρνητική) - του gatekeeper (that this class would go to any lengths to preserve their status) - και το άρθρο του saran είχε κάποια παρόμοια παραδείγματα (αρνητικής/ανήθικης συμπεριφοράς).

    το "men of property" μου θύμισε το "gentry" (landed gentry, specifically) - which probably wouldn't apply today (and it was a higher social class, anyway).
